Close to the City of El Calafate, the historical Walichu Caves hide unique secrets. A site to visit and let ourselves get carried away.
Countless activities may be enjoyed in the City of El Calafate and its surroundings. However, there is no doubt that a visit to the Walichu Caves is a must in any traveler's tour list. That was our destination.
We left the city and took Provincial Route 11. Once we saw the sign that pointed the access to the caves next to Lake Argentino, we turned into that path.
We parked the car. As we entered the caves, we became immersed in a distant world that was already gone, though still present.
We followed a path that was especially opened for visitors to discover the wonders men and nature left for us thousands of years ago.
